    Pathetic sentence formation bro, please try editing for yourself first if can’t afford an editor. I feel my nerves turning up and down with the language you’ve portrayed. And for all those crazy peeps here, please help him through your feedback that improvises his writing, rather than showing your patriotism in BLOCK letters !

      I´m so curious on what brings you here Sagarika. I feel shame and pity for your teachers, seeing your education and respect. What´s the use if you know to speak good english but damn poor on respect for others ? Thank first to the education you gained rather than feeling pity for others. And finally I beg you to GROW UP ! Hope I don´t have to explain you on using BLOCK letters.

    This article was painful to read, it is as simple as that. There is definitely interesting stuff in here but it is for naught if written by wannabe writer with the comprehension of an 8-year-old. I wanted to stab myself in the brain because of the awful grammar and poor sentences. What mortifies me is that out of 1.3 billion people, the site owner couldn’t find a half-decent writer who can put a coherent sentence together. Content like this gives us writers a bad reputation and low wages in Asian countries. I mean seriously, fire this guy. Or hire another writer if this is written by the site owner himself.

    Ooh ooh, I have got another one. It was so painful to read that I would rather sit through Twilight: new moon again.

    I don’t agree with the fact that India never invaded any country in 10000 years or something. A country called India as such was formed only on 15 Aug ,1947.. Before that it was ruled by various kings and most of them have waged war and won. Eg. Rajendra cholan. He has invaded Thailand, Malaysia

    1. Sagar says: Reply

      Mam pls get ur facts re correct those place which you mention are came into Indian territory. India never invade any foreign country but war among the kingdom was common. Pls search the map of India about the time of Aryan’s came in the picture of Indian history and you see how wast our India was and all the Muslim countries are within the Hindu rulers

    2. Sarath says: Reply

      Agreed. It is a fact that Rajendra Chola invaded Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. And occupied large parts. Remember Angkor Wat and the huge Hindu temple there ? The name “Singapore” itself is from “Singam” the Tamil word meaning “Lion”
